Teaching Awareness of Ethical Governance in Sport (TAGS)

Development of an educational teaching resource on ensuring good governance of sport (athlete – governing body relationships) for HE providers.

The aim of this project is to develop a teaching resource on good governance in sport that can be utilised in higher education institutions as part of course programmes.

It will be a resource focused upon ensuring and developing fair, equitable and transparent relationships between athletes and governing bodies. The rationale for this project stems from the increasing prevalence of appeals and complaints from athletes against sports’ governing bodies, as demonstrated by our partner organisation, Sports Resolutions, who are world leaders in providing support and arbitration services for athletes and governing bodies.

Working with Sports Resolutions will enable a resource to be developed that can significantly enhance wider European practice where this type of service is not currently provided.

Ultimately, the aim is to improve the good governance of sport by providing explicit training for those that will enter this sphere of the workforce.
